OULU,FINLAND – Finnish In-Mold Structural Electronics (IMSE)pioneer TactoTek, today announces three new products at TactoTek’s industry leader conference IMSE Days 4.0. The products announced today enhance the company’s capability to address the growing demand to creating differentiating smart surfaces in the market place, manufactured in a sustainable manner. Karthikesh Raju, SVP for Product Management andMarketing at TactoTek says:“For our customers, the enhanced usability of TactoTek’s products and services will help scale the design, manufacturing and delivery of the solutions in the swiftly evolving market place.”
With IMSE Online, TactoTek offers an enhanced user experience for its licensees to identifying and interacting with the knowledge base products – IMSE Designer and Builder. It streamlines the delivery of the products and services, provided by a single sign-on platform hosting all the solutions. Overall, IMSE Online significantly improves the usability of the products.
TactoTek IMSE Trainer
IMSE Trainer is a simple-to-use, a self-directed program to learn about IMSE technology. This LMS based platform enables the licensees to interact with the experts and accelerate the engineers’ ability to design with IMSE technology. IMSE Trainer ensures that designers understand how smart structures with IMSE technology are designed. A module-based self-learning platform will enable the users to discover the rules of IMSE design, and apply and test that knowledge. IMSE Trainer also enables designers to interact with the experts through a Q&A module.
TactoTek IMSE reference designs
The first reference design, IMSE Mesa Controller provides a practical method for implementing IMSE technology for the benefit of a Human Machine Interface (HMI) application. The IMSE Mesa Controller provides a framework for building applications for different market segments incl. smart home, automotive and industrial controls. The family includes intelligent ambient light and combined with an external haptics module or a UI framework, several HMI applications can be developed. This reference design is an advanced HMI system unlike any in the marketplace today. The TactoTek IMSE Mesa Controller enables licensees and customers to utilize the principles to build enriching surfaces meeting their own specific needs.
TactoTek is the leading provider o fInjection Molded Structural Electronics (IMSE®) solutions that integrate printed circuitry and electronic components into 3D injection molded smart surfaces. Leading IMSE use cases include human-machine interfaces (HMI), connectivity, and electronic styling features for automotive, smart homes, appliances, and other markets. IMSE outperforms conventional electronics manufacturing methods by reducingGreenhouse Gas Emissions significantly. Benefiting from simulated design processes and reduced material use, IMSE Designed smart surfaces are considerably lighter in mass, leading to substantial lifetime GHG reductions. TactoTek develops and industrializes IMSE technology, creates mass production-ready IMSE prototypes, and licenses IMSE technology for 3rd party IMSE part design and global mass production.
